Wine Club, June 2020

What happened to March, April, and May-2020? The Corona virus pandemic and quarantine that essentially shutdown businesses, including winery tasting rooms, was certainly a shock no one particularly anticipated or enjoyed. 4.0 Cellars did what was possible during this strange time, selling wine on-line for shipping and curbside pickup.

And some of the staff is waiting a bit longer to come back to work. An abundance of caution is not a bad thing during these strange times, but still, it means that “our work family” has not been together for a really, really long time.  Continue »
